Brochymena arborea

Brochymena arborea
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
November 5, 2008
Size: Maybe around 16 mm?
Found on the garage. Moved quickly so my measurement may be a little off. I have it, so I can take more shots or measure better if it would help.

I believe I just found one, too (Brochymena arborea)
I just posted an image of a pair of these, which I found on my curtains last night. I belive it's the very same type.
I didn't do anything that would cause them to expell their "stink," but I am curious if anyone can describe what the odor is actually like?

a textbook P. arborea -- nice set!

I frassed the middle 3 images, unless you think there is some value to the guide?

i really like the head+pronotum shot
it shows features of diagnostic value, pls keep it

I guess
I'll let it go if nothing else is needed.

moved the middle image in. I sometimes overload images to get an ID, but then don't know what isn't needed (if I did I guess I could have made the ID)
